The two veterans of the Southern California rock scene were sitting in a cozy recording studio, talking about what it means for a songwriter to come up with a hit that turns into a rock standard. "It's like having hotels in Monopoly," suggested Steve Wood, whose '70s band, Honk, got on the game board but never cashed in. That raised a grin on the bearded, bespectacled face of Wood's friend, Jack Tempchin. "Somebody (just) landed on my hotel," Tempchin said.

IWRITE THE SONGS: North County singer-songwriter Jack Tempchin has never cared much for the spotlight. Except for a brief fling on the road in 1976 with his own band, the Funky Kings, he's spent most of the past 15 years writing hit songs for the Eagles ("Already Gone") and, later, ex-Eagle Glenn Frey ("You Belong to the City"). Last year, however, Tempchin put together a new band, the Seclusions, and vowed to give the spotlight another try.

Three songwriters who helped compose some of the Eagles' most popular tunes accepted a settlement Friday to resolve allegations that their music publisher shortchanged them out of millions of dollars in royalties. Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther and Jack Tempchin had alleged that Warner-Chappell Music, the publishing arm of AOL Time Warner Inc., had underpaid them for co-writing such hits as "Peaceful, Easy Feeling" and "Take It Easy." Terms of the settlement could not be determined late Friday.
